Description

In an era of fake news and alternative facts, the controversial open source investigative collective known as Bellingcat utilizes digital technology and crowdsourcing to expose truth and demonstrate the power of citizen journalism. Exposing facts about events such as the MH17 disaster, the Syrian war, and the poisoning of a Russian spy in the United Kingdom, Bellingcat gained recognition as a valuable and reliable news source, and has since been a reputable resource in global government investigations. Director Hans Pool follows the collective as they work to uncover media’s secrets and above all else, return a sense of journalistic integrity to the media landscape. -MR
